Prematurely eliminated from Euro 2020 with the selection of Portugal against Belgium on Sunday night, Cristiano Ronaldo will have to settle his future faster than expected. The Lusitanian star disappointed against the Belgians and his nation will not go further in the competition. Back in Italy and Turin, now is the time to talk long term and the star would not necessarily be part of Massimiliano Allegri’s plans. Suddenly, a departure this summer cannot be ruled out.
This information comes directly to us from “Tuttosport” as well as “The print”. CR7 could well be sold during this summer transfer window and its management would have even fixed its price. Arrived in Piedmont in July 2018 against nearly 117 million euros, he would be leaving and the Turin club would like to sell him this summer, in order to recover some money and limit the damage in terms of finances. Under contract until 2022, it is now or never to get rid of the colossal salary of the Portuguese, especially after a catastrophic year due in large part to the global pandemic. Suddenly, the Bianconeri have made the decision to accept a departure and claim around 30 million euros to let go of their 36-year-old star as confirmed “Tuttosport” this Tuesday afternoon.
His agent, the famous Jorge Mendes should have his work cut out for him, since he will have to find a new club for his protégé, even if it is possible that he will stay and continue with Juve until the end of his contract, in case of failure in negotiations with the other teams.
PSG loves Ronaldo, Ronaldo loves PSG
Among the clubs potentially interested in the star of Juventini, we find Manchester United but also and especially Paris Saint-Germain. Information confirmed by “La Stampa” which indicates that CR7 would be tempted by an adventure in Paris Saint-Germain and interested in the project to win the Champions League. However, no official offer has arrived on Andrea Agnelli’s desk. “The striker still has a one-year contract with Juventus and knows very well that only PSG can offer him this salary, in the event of Mbappé’s departure, with a sensational operation that combines terrain (winning the Champions League) and marketing (World Cup in Qatar in 2022). So far, Ronaldo has remained silent in the transfer market and his agent has kept not revealing his strategy, although he does not really have an offer in hand. Now it’s time for decisions and Juve have to make one of the most important decisions, ” can we read in the newspaper.
Besides Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United is also a track that seems credible. Afterwards it is possible to see some anomalies in this file. “Tuttosport” tells us a little more about the interest of the Premier League club. “Manchester United could offer Juventus a trade with Paul Pogba, but in the Old Trafford offices they are not so convinced. His salary is currently 30 million euros net, which represents approximately 58.5 gross. The English tax system is not too different from that in Italy and that would result in an expenditure of 120 million gross for United over two years. It’s hard to see Ronaldo signing a contract for just one year, despite turning 37 in February. Today, the one who has no financial problem and can fully meet the economic demands and go without thinking is Paris Saint-Germain. ” Concludes the Turin media. Remember that in the event of a departure this summer, the Old Lady will have to recruit massively to strengthen her attacking sector and remain competitive for the coming season …
